Embarrassed Eagles fans wearing paper bags on their heads

A while back, there was some rabble over the Redskins not allowing embarrassed fans to wear paper bags on their heads. The team cited a stadium rule that states that no masks of any kind are permitted in the stadium, but apparently there’s an exception for humiliated fans of the opposing team. 

These Eagles fans were spotted at FedEx yesterday, hiding in what they called an “Eagles fan protection program.” We probably shouldn’t make fun of them, though. I’m pretty sure we’d see more than a few Redskins bag heads if security would allow it.
